Gorge Loses Another Builder/Alumni

Gorge Soccer Association

November 17, 2015

Gorge has lost another great support, builder, manager and alumni tonight ... Ron McClure (Ronnie Mac).

Ron has been around the club as long as I can remember … going back to when he was involved with his son Cam’s team back in early 70’s ... I happened to play in the same age group with them.

Ron and Dunc McCaig helped take the 1960's Gorge Gold team to greater things over the next few years.   

We have Ron & his wife Bev to thank for many things … but one thing I remember was a decade or so ago when club members had to volunteer to help at Tillicum Bingo to get gaming money for the club - Ron & Bev would volunteer at Bingo Hall for all members of the club, so no one else would have to.

He was a great team official, manager, executive and Gorge supporter.   I don’t have to tell you how much the club meant to Ron and Ron meant to the club.  The field house was named in his honor because of his work for the club.

I fondly remember seeing him most Saturday mornings for coffee at the club and he was always being happy, friendly and ready to help.

Ron was also lucky enough to see a number of his grandchildren playing for his beloved Gorge.

Gorge’s thoughts and wishes are with his family and friends.
